In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at smartphone photos memories, a single scull on the Arno, Bellosguardo and Marilynn Yee.

  • The first in a series exploring the relationship between memory and photography in the age of smartphone cameras, Audie Cornish interviews psychologist Linda Henkel about whether photographs impair our memory.
  • The Sartorialist Scott Schuman's shot of a single scull on the Arno has over 100K likes. "I think meaningless images remain meaningless but strong images can now go viral and spread across the world at lighting speed," he notes.
  • A Tour of Bellosguardo shows off the Santa Barbara mansion that has been uninhabited since the 1950s yet "loving cared for at the cost of $40,000 per month."
  • After 37 years at the N.Y. Times, Marilynn Yee is retiring. She was among the first women and the first Asian on the photography staff. "I got to meet a lot of people and was extremely lucky to have been part of the New York Times family," she said. The Lens blog features 19 of her images.
